2002 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Had my X for 1.5 yrs now, and still
love the bugger! It is fast, nimble,
goes over any obstacle, and parks like
a Geo! A Tonka Toy that I drive every
day, it is most high on the grin
factor. Must haves: full steel doors,
with real windows, premium sound, good
sunglasses for top-down enjoyment! I
have the 3.73 gearing option, and it
launches like a jackrabbit. Only
thing I wish I'd gotten was ABS. This
is the best convertible/truck/toy/go-
anywhere vehicle ever! I've owned
musclecars, foreign sports cars,
trucks, and various other vehicles,
but nothing has turned my crank like
this Jeep. I fall in love all over
again every single day!


Best Features

Laughing at the other drivers in 4WD station wagons that they call "SUV's." Wind in your hair & sun in your eyes. Timeless cool factor - chicks dig a guy in a nice Jeep! Easy to drive & park. Agility.


Worst Features

Improved mileage (of course!), easier to operate top, better noise isolation with top up, little more driver legroom to go with the headroom. Stock auxiliary driving lights. More cargo space, but where would you put it? Perhaps an updated CJ-8 Scrambler? :)

2002 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

After looking at Jeeps for years...I
finally purchased a 2002 X six cyl
with auto transmission. It is a fun
car to drive and rides very well. I
have 27,000 on the car without a
problem. Two areas to be aware of:

1. The part time four wheel drive can
not be used on dry or wet pavement. It
is not an all wheel drive vehicle.
Goiod for off road or in snow only.

2. Wranglers depreciate more quickly
than anything I have owned. Paid about
$21K and Edmunds says it is now worth
about $12K. Ugh!!


Best Features

Looks, off road ability.


Worst Features

Gas mileage is dismal. Expect about 14-15 around town and no more than 20 on flat road w/o AC on.

Review

The Wrangler has been everything I
expected and more. It's one of the
funnest vehicles I have ever driven.
It will take you just about anywhere
you want to go. Jeep has been around
since the 1940's so you know they are
doing something right. You have to get
a Jeep Wrangler.


Best Features

styling, off-road capabilities, ruggedness, jeep heritage.


Worst Features

gas mileage(that is expected though), nothing much wrong with this ride

2002 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I own a 2003 Wrangler X. I've added 35"
tires, 3inch body and 2inch suspension
lift. This is the most fun I have even
had driving. I'm barely getting 13.7mpg
though. I wish I had gotten one sooner,
this is the coolest ride ever!


Best Features

Best of all I like the timeless shape, I never need worry that they body style is going to change and leave me with an outdated style.


Worst Features

I'd like better fuel economy of course, also would like a little more pep at high speeds...I'm a 5th gear driver...but with this one..I'm stuff riding around mostly in 4th to maintain speeds on the highway.
